SAY: The Stuttering Association for the Young


SAY Confident Voices Short Play Project (8-week program)

The Short Play Project is an 8-week original playwriting program.  In small groups, kids and teens create original characters and stories that explore themes about stuttering and beyond.  Once the plays are written they are fully produced by a professional design team with costumes, lights, projections, and sound, and our participants have the opportunity to perform their plays in an Off-Broadway theater.

Why Plays? Our imagination is boundless and plays can give a clear voice to that endless world of possibilities.  Plays give us the structure to tell some of the most personal and profound stories. They also give us permission to share our most outrageous and creative thoughts.

Participants have the opportunity to share their work on stage – with no pressure to perform – in small groups at the culmination of each program, in a performance fully produced by SAY’s distinguished artistic staff. It’s the ultimate confidence-building experience that transfers directly into the classroom and everyday life.
